There is more to Sardinia than the Emerald Coast in August, as lovers of unspoiled landscapes, the bluest of Mediterranean waters, and elegant Sardinian horses can testify.  They will find their apotheosis at (prosaically-named) Horse Country, a resort with three hotels and 380 horse stalls located 50 minutes from Cagliari.  The facility caters to both English and Western riders, beginners and experienced equestrians, horse lovers eager to try one of the centre’s 72 mounts or bring their own.  The 400-hectare equestrian centre offers a full range of activities all year round, from lessons to beach and forest rides to daylong treks that visit local natural and cultural attractions such as a reserve with red flamingos, a fisherman’s village, and the golden dunes of the Torre dei Corsari.    Guests interested in improving their skills can opt for group or private lessons in dressage, jumping, and the “monta sarda”, a local style of riding.   “Emotional” riding experiences include nighttime rides and rides to/in the ocean without a saddle.  English, French, and German are spoken.
